    Thank you for that input I am thinking of the same thing but not a V blade for the reason that to many operators and talking to one of the landscapers they said that he V is great as long the operator remains level headed and not a cowboy.

    Before you decide on a plow brand you need to check out dealer service and support. The best plow will do you no good if the closest dealer is 100 miles away and you need a part fast. Same for service. I use only Sno-Way plows and they are awesome. I have a Western 1000 Tailgate sander and it works well too.

    yep, go with the best local support,

    for the most part, the plows are constructed the same, or close to , and have similar designs, and hydro system, some ppl like down pressure, or chain lift, its just ur own person preferance, or control systems

    salters... its depends on what it is ur spreading.... look into the meyer blaster, western 1000

    I like Western stuff, but any of the 5 or so "big name" plows should be alright. Just make sure that you have a good dealer. I'm shopping around right now to find a good dealer to get my new truck setup.

    A Meyer owner recommending a Snoway...can't say thats the first time I've seen that. :nod:

    Like the others have said, buy whats serviceable in your vicinity.

    The welds on Western plows are junk. Have two MVP's with horrid welds and I wasn't real impressed by welds on the mount on my truck either. I think stuff out of Mexico is welded better. You name it, it had every defect possible....but Western saw no problem with em...gee I weld for a living...I would of been fired if I so much as thought about letting something like that go out the door to a customer.

    Oh yeah did I mention the headgear on the plow got bent last year and I don't cowboy it?
